    I never tried it but if it is anything like vegemite than I might feel tempted to click on the "disgusting" answer of your poll ... even though I have only ever SMELLED vegemite... could NOT make myself EAT it. It seemed to be concentrated broth paste that I would use to make a broth with lots of water added.

    vegemite is close to marmite I would say ;)

    Anyway, you have to spread it thin on your toast! Else as a beginner you would be in trouble ;) It tastes different from what it smells like I would say. Sort of malty and salty. Vergy good when hungover ;)

    I'd say licking a tramps armpit would taste better

    Sacrilege! Tis the breakfast food of the gods!

    On toast that is. On bread, just doesn't work.

    And since we're addressing some of the major questions facing today's society...
    Why do they still make Filofaxes? And why do some people insist on buying them for you as birthday/Christmas presents?

    A true believer! Good! :)

    :hail: MARMITE is good for you!

    That is a tough one ... Maybe because if they would not make them, one would never know what to buy as presents!

    ... glad I never got one myself ;)

    But that's easy... bad novelty socks and ties! Not forgetting ugly jumpers. That way, there's the added torment of knowing sooner or later you'll have to be seen wearing them so the relative in question isn't offended. :lol:


    That's a pity. You can have mine from the last 5 years if you'd like :D

    LOVE vegemite! Hot toast or crumpets, melted butter on it and vegemite spread into melted butter....yummmmm.

    Marmite, as close as it is in consistency, color and appearances...tastes horrible. I grew up eating something very similiar, I know, but I almost barf when I smell marmite....go figure!

    Vegemite looks like the handy-grease I use on my car and bikes, it smells foul and tastes like sh!t.

    Peanut Butter FTW!! :lol:

    lol, it looks like my thread inspires some religious war amongst followers of different breakfast-gods ;)

    But tell me, Xmetal ... why on earth did you taste handy grease? It is not for eating you know ... ;)

    Luminosity .. I at least agree crumpets are great! ;)

    ZaphodB ... please keep your filofaxes ;)
